Details about response to accident involving district school bus

This morning, a bus transporting students from William Penn Senior High School to the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy was involved in an accident. Six students were transported to the hospital for assessment of possible injuries. As of 3 p.m., each of the students had been treated and released from the hospital. The driver of the school bus was also transported to the hospital. All other students on the bus were evaluated by school nurses.

“Aloha” is a Hawaiian word that means hello and goodbye. It also describes an attitude or a way of life — the Aloha Spirit:

Be in unity and harmony with your real self. Be honest, truthful, patient, kind to all life forms and humble.

Students started the week with the creation of an individual Tiki-making activity.

Tuesday was Bring a Beach Towel Day.

On Wednesday, students made lanterns to light the path to a positive school year.

The theme was carried through to our Open House, and on Friday the students participated in a PRIDE assembly to review the PRIDE behavior matrix and learn about our Davis Dollars rewards program.
